You need to configure that in power options set it as "high performance"
And in windows settings go to account settings then "sign in options"
set the option for lock the screen "if you've been away" to "never"
tab a few times and turn off the "dynamic lock screen" option as well.

Mitch, regarding what Hareth outlined, for the second part, try:

press windows+i,
tab once, arrow to and spacebar on Accounts,
tab once, arrow to and spacebar on Sign-in options,
tab to Dynamic lock, Allow Windows to automatically lock your device when you’re away check box,
spacebar to uncheck it.

moderated Re: Dell laptop seems sluggish on battery...

Chris Hill
 

It is slower because they are trying to give people the long battery life they want, and the only way to do so is to reduce performance. You can always turn off all the power saving, and then your battery will do well to last two hours most of the time.  Some laptops have function key combinations to turn off the screen or reduce the brightness, you might first see if you can do either if you don't need to see the screen, if you were to do so, turning off some of the power management to get better performance might allow you to still get some battery life.

Hello,

There might be some explanations for this. First of all, do you have a discrete graphics card in your laptop, like an NVIDIA graphics card? Perhaps by setting that as the default graphics card might increase performance. You could also go into device manager, and under the network adapters, assuming it's a realtek wifi adaptor, you can disable the minimum power consumption. I only know this based off my experiences with a dell laptop.

moderated question about importing contacts in to Outlook

Madison Martin
 

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how to import gmail contacts in to my Outlook.com account? I
know how to import the PST files, but when I did this it still says that my
contacts are from my gmail account and whenever I delete a contact it goes into
the deleted items folder in my gmail account and not the one in my Outlook.com
account. I have both accounts added to Outlook so not sure why this happened. It
wouldn't be a huge deal but the other day I changed the default account that
opens whenever I open Outlook and as part of that process I had to change the
default data file and then later on when I went to go delete a couple of
contacts none of my contacts were there. My gmail account used to be the default
account that opened whenever I opened Outlook so since I changed that I assume
that's why my contacts no longer show up. Using latest versions of Jaws, Office
365 and Windows 11; really hope someone can help me as I really want to have
this account be the one that opens whenever I open Outlook but I also want to
get all of my contacts back (I have over 500).

There is a way to find a portion of the text that has a specific language label, but it is not what I would call quickly search through the text exactly. Besides, you should know

Which language  you are looking for before trying the search.

Is there any quick way to detect language changes within a Word document? I am not talking about changing proofing language or setting your screen reader to automatically speak in another language when a language change is encountered. I know how to handle those things.
